One of the biggest reasons our clients love TradeKing is because we make it amazingly simple to trade options online or with assistance from our knowledgeable brokers.
We offer 19 different option chains, 14 of which are strategy-based. You can easily find bid, ask and midpoint quotes, implied volatility and delta for individual options, or for an entire strategy. Select the option or strategy you want to trade directly from the chain, and the order entry screen will be pre-populated for you. Even complex option strategies can be traded with just a few clicks of your mouse.
We also offer a full complement of advanced orders like trailing stops, one cancels other and one triggers other.
Trading options with us costs just $4.95 a trade plus 65 cents per option contract. The same rate applies to market, limit, stop and stop-limit orders. That's one of the lowest trading commission rates in the business. For such a low price you'll get one of the most intuitive, robust and powerful option trading platforms available anywhere.
